Audience recognition of the work it instantly - in the day of the premiere in Moscow Soviet Theatre. The former front-line soldiers in the audience were crying, and Twardowski joyfully embraced Novikova behind the scenes, repeating a line from his own poem: "It was, of course, it is!" However, the hero`s reward is not found. Perhaps the members of the Lenin Prize Committee wound up its own counter-considerations, but probably appropriate processing brains spent glavrezh Theater Yuri Zavadsky. It seems to believe that the artist is not his age such an honor. Novikov gave words of Yuri Alexandrovich: "I do not Lenin, has no faith, no glory do not have ..." means Marecki and Plyatt - actors of the older generation and, importantly, neighbor to Zavadsky range, to what Boris Kuzmich never belonged.
In general, he did not get the award, but jealousy partners currently secured. His widow, remembering those years, calls do not occur except bullying. One well-known, rightfully a favorite actor of the audience grew Novikov tooth is of such magnitude that, when a two on me years later he went on Zavadsky, "well-wisher" did not disdain to ring up theaters with whom colleagues was planned alliance and coolly to discredit fellow craft. It was, for example, destroyed by an agreement with Mikhail Tsarev about moving to Small. But Valentin Pluchek turned to slander not receptive and our hero took the troupe of Satire, where he served from 63 th to 72 th year. However, the second Terkina fate threw him not, but worked adequately, with talent, with the invention. When Vysokovsky after Novikov introduced to the role of the pharmacist in the "Intervention", then asked for permission to play with those remarks that Boris Kuzmich for himself dosochinil. Novikov did not mind.
While in the early `60s the actor became a theatrical legend of the capital, the cinema has brought him more fame and all-Union. He made his debut in Julia Solntseva, 55 th ( "captive auditors"). Then Vladimir Basov without sample confirmed him to be the Vitenka Shubnikov in Novels "The first joy" and "No Ordinary Summer". And there it started-rolled. His kinouniversitetami Novikov considered shooting Gerasimov in "Quiet Flows the Don". By the way, the master used to say that actors are just good, and there are - interesting. And, presumably, Novikova attributed to the second type.
Boris Kuzmich was filmed by Dovzhenko, in Reisman, who was very fond of, has changed many colorful cunning fools, and even the villains from other directors. Suffice it to recall the picture "Don novel", "Cossacks", "probationary period", "My Friend, Kolka," "French Lessons", "White Dew". In cinematic account of the actor more than a hundred roles, but the general public is stronger than all remember and, oddly enough, in love with a werewolf Taras - Ilya from the series "Shadows at Noon" - sort of worm, ready to adapt to any life circumstances (the definition of director Krasnopolye). Saying "zagremit fanfare" is proverbial; Novikov met on the street, unsophisticated audience murmured in surprise: Buy-sell go ... By the way, Boris Kuzmich was not an actor modest: if there was with the group to submit a picture of the audience in the hall of recovery usually occurs, heard laughter, shouts in his address, and he, as if ashamed of his fame, was hiding behind the backs of colleagues.
As for the legendary character from the "Shadow ...", the artist came up with him from "A" to "Z", painted the image of the nuances - from mild stuttering, always running around the eye needs to look around - out of fear that strike. His facial expressions in major plans is strikingly diverse, it was completely organic in its notion - is not afraid to look away from the camera, pochesatsya ,. peredernutsya. On the playground he brought not only dosochinennye replica, but sometimes the director`s decision to the scene. (And sorry, that I did not seriously engaged in directing.)
SUMMARY OF THE CAST Boris Novikov prevailed even over the instinct of self-preservation: he was ready, if necessary, to go into the cold water or crawling on the snow, it is not sparing himself. But the most important way could -Amazing within expressive, often Distinguishing external image to play drama, using polukraskami, halftones. No wonder one of the sensations of the television series "The adjutant of his excellency" was a five-minute monologue jeweler Liberson - a small masterpiece of a great artist. The absurdity of the characteristic appearance and accent of the old Jew, which robbed his own secret police come for advice, only emphasized Novikov hopeless drama of this man. Drama, which Liberson had almost reconciled. The Bolsheviks eliminated the cause of his life, Petliurists casually murdered son ahead - senility, early death in misery. And alive, it only remains of tenderness and compassion for his wife, her awareness of the need to brighten up the bleak sunset. If cost invent Stanislavsky school, probably just for the sake of piercing and definitive works when a person is just sitting and talking in the frame, and in the meantime his past and future show through to the audience at a glance ...
The last twenty years Novikov suffered from diabetes, and because izteatra gone - although some mistakenly claim that he left the scene iz-za addiction to alcohol. However, with regard to alcohol - a Russian actor without sin? But filmmakers Novikov did not seem to take offense: at the site fails. Another thing, being under shofe could call in their spare time, for example, Krasnopolskaya "Arkadyevitch, come with a dog or something, take a walk." (Taking into account the distance from Moscow, Vladimir A. sometimes replied: "Yes, until I shall reach, your dog is described ...") Because drinking problems actor did not go with the performances of the country: to break afraid. In all kinoekspeditsii he was accompanied by his wife Nadezhda Antonovna, except to Uskov Krasnopolsky let go with peace: the group they had malopyuschy.
The posthumous ARTICLE of Novikov in a national newspaper wrote that in the last years of Boris Kuzmich his family badly needed. However, Yarmolnik sent from the "L-club" for $ 200 per month, but this is only enough for food, but it was not enough for this treatment. Then the artist`s wife, hoping to prolong his days, asked the Union of Cinematographers in advance to give the money owed to the funeral. But the return of Boris Kuzmich to life is no longer helped. His departure is almost no one noticed: in the Moscow International Film Festival blaring fanfare.
We can not say that Boris Novikov forgotten today - his film played on television, even removed the program from the series "To Remember". However, once the transfer is not very marked his identity, and place in the hierarchy of the actor is not clarified. Meanwhile, this is the place of a professional national scale. Or simply - the national actor. Without exaggeration and exaggerated posthumous complementarity.
